"A book of quick, modern recipes that will have you breezily whipping up gorgeous French meals in the blink of an eye. While not every recipe here is a fifteen-minute miracle -- some do take a little bit of time -- each one will transport you into a Paris state of mind: a place of breeziness, insouciance, whimsy, beauty and delight. Frankly, to a place where time slows down a bit. Roughly 120 fabulous recipes, sample menus and a generous smattering of art de vivre, tips and ideas Paris Express is a confidence-building companion for home cooks who have no time to fuss, but whose lives in the kitchen (and elsewhere) are craving instant cheer, indulgence and inspiration. Laura Calder is host of Food Network Canada's series French Food at Home"--Provided by publisher.

Not a cookbook I would buy. Too few pictures of the recipes, and not all that many recipes that were appealing to me. I liked the selection of simple desserts. The recipes don't have too long lists of ingredients and the time to prepare is often mentioned, which I really appreciate. No nutritional information.

This is the first cookbook of Laura Calder's that I've read, but I found it full of interesting autobiographical and semi-instructional notes as well as authentic recipes that capture Parisian lifestyle rather than travel cooking.
